Expats routinely move around the globe to work, that is what an expat does. Normally contracts last from 6 weeks to around 2 years, that seems to be enough time in one location for most of you. Contract extensions are normal of course and we’ve known expats in Saudi who have extended over 10 or 12 years. But all this is very different to making a decision to pack up, lock, stock and barrel and move your whole family to another country forever.

There are now plenty of companies in all the far-flung destinations to help guide you through the sometimes complex procedures.
